Our beta experiment is now 28% complete thanks to all of you. If you haven’t joined the beta experiment, please join now! We could really use your help to finish this experiment. If you’re hesitant because you don’t have a science background, take the leap. You really don’t need a science background to help. You just need to 1. be willing to learn, and 2. want to help. If you’re on our Mark2Cure mailing list, you will receive our weekly update via email. This week’s update includes a survey, so please fill it out and help us improve!
While you have been busy contributing markups and sharing Mark2Cure (thank you all), Max has been fixing some of the issues you’ve been sending us.
Here are some improvements we’ve made thanks to your input:
- Once you’ve completed the trainings, you can now review what needs to be marked by clicking on the ‘help icon’ (bottom right corner), and then on the ‘help page’ in the pop up.
- We’ve also made a few enhancements in the first tutorial to address some of the issues you’ve reported.
- you can now contact us using the ‘help icon’ if you get stuck before you register, but be sure to include your email address or we won’t be able to respond to you! If you’re logged in, we can find/reply to you just fine.
We’ve got many more improvements on the way, so please keep marking those docs and informing us about the issues you encounter!
If you’d like to help, but don’t know how, just go to http://mark2cure.org and click on ‘start now’. You can also help us by sharing Mark2Cure-related content with your friends and asking them to join.
I mark2cure because “I am interested in the design of the Mark2Cure mechanism and would hope to learn more about how it works.” — Bill (one of our most productive contributors). Bill is too humble and doesn’t think any thing he’s done deserves any mention, but we think Bill is awesome. In fact, you are all awesome!
